ONTARIO – A parade of veterans and military units from all over Malheur County will take place this Saturday – a day before Veterans Day – in Ontario to thank and honor area veterans for their patriotism, service and loyalty to this country.

The parade, hosted by the American Legion Post 67 in Ontario, will assemble at 1 p.m. at West Parks Plaza in Ontario. 

 “We will head straight down SW 4th Avenue and then will hang a left on Oregon Street and go for a couple blocks,” said Dan Burks, the district commander . . .
